It offers an overview of why care is important and the approaches needed to bring about change, including an article which looks at innovative ways of challenging gender norms to bring about a more equal sharing of care responsibilities between men and women, and an inspiring example of home-based carers in Africa coming together to get their priorities heard

VOLUNTARY SERVICES OVERSEAS (VSO)

This position paper explores the connections between gender inequality and HIV and AIDS. It draws on research conducted by VSO in South Africa, Namibia, India and Cambodia to understand the national and international-level policies on this issue, and the gap between policy and implementation. The research indicates three key areas where these issues can be addressed: the involvement of men in activities designed to reduce gender inequality and minimise the impact of HIV and AIDS; continued and sustained support of women's empowerment, including the implementation of existing policies and commitments; and addressing the immediate needs of women affected by HIV and AIDS, as carers, as people suffering from gender violence, and as individuals who need treatment for HIV and AIDS
